Changes at the Top of Om­ni­com in KSA

ArabAd - - PEOPLE -

Af­ter 13 years of ser­vice, Chou­cral­lah Abou Samra, CEO of Om­ni­com Me­dia Group MENA in Saudi Ara­bia, will leave his po­si­tion in June. Faisal Shams, cur­rently Gen­eral Man­ager of OMD in the king­dom, will as­sume the lead­er­ship of the group’s three of­fices in the KSA.

Abou Samra has en­joyed a no­table ca­reer with the group, tak­ing over the man­age­ment of OMD’S op­er­a­tion in Jed­dah in 2003. Since then, he has opened and over­looked OMD’S and PHD’S of­fices in Riyadh, won sig­nif­i­cant new ac­counts and awards, de­vel­oped the group’s of­fer­ing and built an im­pres­sive and solid net­work of re­la­tion­ships with key stake­hold­ers.

per­sonal project, join­ing his fam­ily in his na­tive Le­banon. He will, how­ever, con­tinue as a con­sul­tant to the group for the rest of the year to en­sure a smooth tran­si­tion.

Faisal Shams, who’s been with the group for close to 10 years, has held var­i­ous man­age­ment roles and han­dled a num­ber of key clients across the re­gion from the MENA HQ in Dubai. He moved to the king­dom last year to lead OMD’S Saudi

In his new at­tri­bu­tions at hold­ing level, Shams will re­port di­rectly to Elie Khouri, CEO of Om­ni­com Me­dia Group MENA.
